    Default Flummoxed in the Fall…


    I’ve been out fishing on both Shearon Harris and Jordan several times in the last few weeks for crappie and have done fairly miserable on both.

    On Shearon Harris, I went night fishing 1-2 days before Ian hit the Carolinas. The fishing was noticeably slower that a few weeks earlier and the Shad did not school in giant masses like they did before.

    After the storm passed, I fished a few days later on Jordan lake, and have gone several times since then. I have tried tightlining and bottom bouncing minnows, slow trolling jig heads tipped with minnows, and pulling crappie cranks. All have done equally poor.

    I know the crappie are there (I can see them on the livescope), but why are they not biting? The weather has been beautiful, but the fish seem to have had lockjaw lately.

    Anyone have any insight or tips into how I can put a few fall slabs in the boat? Thanks very much in advance.

    Anthony seems to be having no problem loading the boat anywhere he's going, especially at Harris. Keep at it, if you can see them, you'll eventually figure out the most effective way to catch them.
